Jared Leto Wins at the Oscars!
Our awesome friend, Jared Leto, won the Oscars for Best Actor in a Supporting Role last night!
This award was the very first award given at the show, and Jared was able to share this incredible moment with his mother and his brother, Shannon, from 30 Seconds to Mars. Not only was his role in the film Dallas Buyers Club memorable, Jared’s acceptance speech touched many people.

“Incredible. Ellen, I love you. To my fellow nominees, I’m so proud to share this journey with you. I’m in awe and have so much respect for you all. To the Academy, thank you. In 1971, Bossier City, Louisiana, there was a teenage girl who was pregnant with her second child. She was a high school dropout and a single mom, but somehow she managed to make a better life for herself and her children. She encouraged her kids to be creative, to work hard and to do something special. That girl is my mother and she’s here tonight.
And I just want to say, I love you, Mom. Thank you for teaching me to dream.
To my brother, Shannon, the best big brother in the world, you’re a true artist. Thank you so much for sharing this insane and amazing adventure that is 30 Seconds to Mars, and for being my best friend. I love you. Thank you.
To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight in places like the Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to say we are here and as you struggle to… to make your dreams happen, to live the impossible… We’re thinking of you tonight.
And this is, is incredibly special as well because there’s so many people that helped me get here. And I just want to say thank you to Focus Features, to Mick Sullivan, to Jim Toth, to Jason Weinberg, to Emma Ludbrook, to Kelly Adams, to the entire Dallas Buyers Club team. Matthew, I love. Jean-Marc.
And this for the 36 million people who have lost the battle to AIDS and to those of you out there who have ever felt injustice because of who you are or who you love, tonight I stand here in front of the world with you and for you. Thank you so much and goodnight.”
Although Dallas Buyers Club did not win Best Film, Matthew McConaughey won Best Actor in a Leading Role, and the film also won in the Makeup and Hairstyling category.
Congratulations to Jared and to the whole Dallas Buyers Club team!
